    Yes Di2 is the electronic shifting and I love it..

    I was a bit leery of it at 1st but mainly because I had never used it I guess. Now that I have it, I don't think I can ever go back to mechanical shifting again..

    It's much smoother and it's instantaneous.. With the new software update you can rapid shift as well by holding the button down..

    OP, my apologies for taking over this thread with my bike..

    A little on the pricy side but a great tire! They ride smooth, have great flat protection and they handle well..

    One week prior to my Sirrus purchase, I asked 2 Specialized Dealers if any 2013 Sirrus LTD left, there are. Its the one raqball has in size 54. Price- 5,000 MSRP and not lower, Ok, I said to the guy " who has 5k for a bicycle".
    So if anyone wants that bike its probably still there maybe more than 1 or 2.

    1st change - and my seat and hips are so much happier. Got a Phenon Expert seat from the Spec. outlet inventory. More my width at 130mm. The Targa is going in that box with the other uncomfortable saddles from over the years. New 32mm tires tomorrow and some pics...

    32c tires on the 2014 Sirrus Comp Carbon

    IMG_2235.jpgIMG_2232.jpgIMG_2233.jpgIMG_2234.jpg

    Put on 700x32 Specialized Infinity Sports... pictures show we're definitely pushing the limits of clearance on the Sirrus Comp Carbon frame. (afraid the 33c Triggers would be a no go.) The new Infinity's aren't as lively as the stock tires but I feel more confident diving to the loose gravel shoulders now..

    The new Phenon saddle is soooo fine - barely there.

    Wow, that is tight! There won't be any mud gathering on those tires. I like the 700x32 size tires on my Fuji. Excellent compromise between comfort and performance. Of course, the fork and frame to tire tolerance isn't quite as tight as it is on your Sirrus...

    Arguably the best looking hybrid out there, IMO.

    Sweet bike! I just recently purchaces the Sirrus Comp. Switched out my tires to Gatorskins 23's, replaced the stock seat, and chopped my bars down to 22". I also added some mini aero bars to fight my hand numbness. Love this bike!!!

    I have a 2014 Comp Carbon Disc, but have not weighed it. Also my bike has two water bottles/cages, and a rear seat post bag with spares. I did switch out the stock tires for lighter ones. I will see about getting a weight soon as I'm interested to know myself. It's WAY lighter than my old Trek FX 7.2.

    Honestly they are both going to be close enough in weight more than likely. Ride both, and pick the one that fits you best. A couple ounces in weight doesn't compare to a bike that fits you better.
